Herman Cain Suspends Campaign


UPDATE 1: "As of today, with a lot of prayer and soul searching, I am suspending my presidential campaign," Cain said at an event in Atlanta. "I am suspending my presidential campaign because of the continued distraction, the continued hurt . . . on me, on my family, not because we are not fighters, not because I am not a fighter."

UPDATE 2: In the hours before he made announcement, Cain reached out to some of his rivals, reports National Journal.

"We have talked to the Cain Camp, but we don't want to characterize the conversations," said Alice Stewart, a spokesman for Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn.

UPDATE 3: Cain said he's launching a "plan B" of his public career, a new policy-oriented website called He said he will endorse a Republican candidate for president "in the near future," a declaration that had the feel of ending his campaign more than a suspension, reports MSNBC.


  1. I'm sure he regrets running in the first place now... think how his wife must feel, that poor poor lady.

    Down with Newt!

  2. Ron Paul is now in third nationally.

    If memory serves me correct, the bullshit "top-tier" has always consisted of 3 people (Romney, Perry, Bachman)...(Romney, Perry, Cain)...

    Yet I'm now seeing that it's a "two-man" race.

    Can wait to see the media spin if Ron wins Iowa.

  3. Cain = Palin = complete joke

  4. Biting my tongue:

    Two very close friends from Cal. deserted me and RP for Cain because "Herman is electable".

    Ouch! my tongue is a'hurtin'!!!

  5. Gary Hart's newest drinking buddy.

  6. "with a lot of prayer...." Take it from DSK, Herman, you didn't a prayer once the women started appearing.

  7. "Can wait to see the media spin if Ron wins Iowa."

    "Gingrich Finishes Strong Second in Iowa"

  8. "Prayer"...Is this guy serious?
    Does he really beg to imaginary friends in the sky and expect to receive an answer? These political twits are all psychopaths.

  9. Bye bye. And, on your way out "don't let the door hit ya where the good lord split ya".

  10. Cain was supposed to be on a TeleForum call this morning with the Nebraska GOP. He declined the opportunity I think yesterday (Friday).


  11. Tonight the Paulistinians are soiling their panties that Gingrich and Romney have all but snuffed out their feckless savior.

  12. As I said in a standup routine tonight, "Suspending my presidential campaign" is political speech for "My campaign is over, but please keep sending me money."
